In the United States alone, companies spend more than $1 trillion every year on transportation, warehousing, distribution, and associated inventory management. The responsibility for managing that spending falls squarely on the shoulders of supply chain professionals. While the role of a supply chain professional may differ from company to company, the goals are similarly daunting: to develop and position a company's supply chains in order to compete and win in today's global marketplace.
Packed with abundant anecdotes, interviews, case studies, research, and analysis, Supply Chain Management Best Practices offers a comprehensive and unflinching look at the development of supply chain management by looking at some of the people and the businesses largely responsible for its momentum.
